Implementing strong governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) practices doesn’t involve one solution, one policy, or one team: It involves a collection of solutions, policies, and teams that work together to address the many concerns that make up GRC.

As businesses change in the wake of disruptive technologies, each of the three prongs of GRC faces its own challenges. Data governance becomes more difficult in the face of exponential data growth. One of the greatest risks of any digital enterprise is cybercrime, and preventing it becomes more challenging as hackers grow smarter. And the regulation compliance landscape is constantly changing, making it a challenge for organizations to keep up.

As GRC challenges mount, it is more important than ever to have a robust GRC platform. Everyone has seen stories in the news that illustrate what happens when a company is hacked, or  knowingly or unknowingly skirts regulations. It’s hard to tell what’s worse – the loss of money or the negative publicity that follows.
